expense shall result to the United States as a 
consequence of such trahsfer or as a consequence 
of such terms and conditions prescribed by the 
Secretary of the Navy. There is a further provi- 
sion in this law that the actual transfer of the 
vessel shall take effect upon the expiration of the 
first period of sixty calendar days of continuous 
session of the Congress following the date on which 
information of the proposal to make such transfer 
is transmitted to the Congress, but only if, be- 
tween the date of transmittal and the expiration 
of such sixty day period there has not been passed 
by the two Houses a concurrent resolution stating 
in substance that the Congress does not favor the 
proposed transfer. 

Subject to the provisions of law the Navy will 
agree to the transfer by gift of the German sub- 
marine U-505 to the City of Chicago. The U-505 
is now berthed at the U. S. Naval Shipyard, Ports- 
mouth, New Hampshire and will be held there in 
its present condition until such time as the City 
and the Navy arrive at mutually satisfactory terms 
of transfer. 

In the interest of economy the Navy has accom- 
plished only such maintenance on this submarine 
as to safeguard it. The U-505 was inspected on 
March 17, 1953 with the purpose of determining 
the rehabilitation necessary to fit it as an exhibit. 
The following cost estimates based on this inspec- 
tion have been made and are submitted for your 
consideration since appropriated funds are not 
available for this purpose: 

Preparation for towing to Chicago via 

the St. Lawrence River $ 21,105 

or 

Preparation for towing to Chicago via 
the Erie Canal (includes removal of 
heavy equipment and parts of super- 
structure to meet draft and overhead 
clearance requirements) $ 70,290 

Preparation for visitors to go aboard 
including safety measures and essen- 
tial restoration of the interior $153,895

COMMUNICATIONS, ETC.

It should be noted that the preparational cost 
for towing via the Erie Canal does not include the 
separate transportation and reinstallation of the 
material removed from the U-505 in order to meet 
clearance requirements. 

Although commercial towing charges vary 
widely, it is believed that the cost of towing the 
U-505 to Chicago via the St. Lawrence River would 
approximate $25,000. In view of the expense ot 
preparation for towing via the Erie Canal, no 
estimate for towing by this route is made. 

The estimates given above are considered to be 
minimum charges with no provisions for contin- 
gencies. It is quite possible that the need for som.e 
vital underwater structural repairs may be re- 
vealed at the time the submarine is docked In 
view of the above, it is suggested that the City 
may wish to arrange for private ship repair engi- 
neers to inspect the U-505 at its present location 
K such is desired the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard 
will be instructed to cooperate to the fullest. 

The Navy sincerely appreciates the interest of 
the citizens of Chicago in offering to exhibit the 
U-505 as a memorial to anti-submarine efforts m 
World War II, and to emphasize the importance 
of maintaining adequate naval forces to protect 
the interests of our nation. Please be assured that 
the Navy will do all within its power to assist 
the City of Chicago in this most worthy under- 
taking. 

Sincerely yours, 

(Signed) W. M. Fechteler, 

Admiral, U. S. Navy.

Filing of Petition for Re-Hearing before Illinois 

Commerce Comn. on Increased 

Telephone Rates. 

Also the following communication addressed to the 
City Council under date of April 17, 1953, signed by 
Joseph F. Grossman, Special Assistant Corporation 
Counsel, which was Placed on File: 

"Gentlemen— On January 22, 1953, the Su- 
preme Court of Illinois sustained a judgment of 
the Circuit Court of Kane County which vacated 
an order of the Illinois Commerce Commission de- 
nying increases in Illinois intrastate telephone 
rates calculated to produce $22,000,000.00 addi- 
tional revenue on an annual basis, and remanded 
this cause to the Illinois Commerce Commission 
with directions to conduct further proceedings. The 
City of Chicago, together with the Attorney Gen- 



eral of the State of Illinois and other individuals, 
designated as amicus curiae, filed petitions for re- 
hearing in the Supreme Court of Illinois in an 
effort to prevent these rate increases. In a revised 
opinion filed March 26, 1953, the Supreme Court 
denied the petitions for rehearing. 

"The Illinois Commerce Commission reconsidered 
this matter and on April 15, 1953, without con- 
ducting further hearings, entered an order by 
which it granted to the Illinois Bell Telephone 
Company increases in Illinois intrastate telephone 
rates calculated to produce approximately $lb,- 
500,000.00 annually. In a sincere belief that these 
increases are unreasonable, the City of Chicago 
has filed on this day a petition for rehearing be- 
fore the Illinois Commerce Commission. A copy of 
this petition is herewith attached."

authorizing the Commissioner of Public Works to 
execute an agreement with the Federal Government 
through its Bureau of Community Facilities, now 
known as the Federal Housing and Home Finance 
Agency, for acceptance by the City of $100,000.00 
from the said Bureau of Advance Planning in con- 
nection with the proposed elimination of existing 
railroad grade crossings at the C.M.St.P. & P.R.R. 
tracks between Elston Avenue and the City Limits ; 
and 

Whereas, Subsequently the Federal Government 
transmitted to the City Comptroller an initial check 
for $50,(^0.00 for the preliminary planning neces- 
sary in connection with this work ; and 

Whereas, The Corporation Counsel of the City 
initiated proceedings before the Illinois Commerce

tween the City and the Railroad and the authority

Whereas, Subsequently conferences were held 
between the City's engineers and the Federal 
Agency after which it was agreed that in the light 
of circumstances it would be futile to continue with 
the planning of this project and it was further 
agreed that the account should be closed, a new 
agreement modifying the original agreement be 
executed, and any unused funds in the account be 
returned to the Federal Agency; now, therefore, 
Be It Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. The Commissioner of Public Works 
is hereby authorized to execute a supplemental 
agreement providing for a refund to the Federal 
Government of the unused portion of the initial 
check for $50,000.00 allotted by the Federal Agency

connection with the proposed elimination of rail- 
road grade crossings at the C.M.St.P. & P.R.R. be- 
tween Elston Avenue and the City Limits. The 
form of the supplemental agreement is as follows: 

Supplemental Agreement 
Application No. 111. ll-P-541 

This Agreement entered into this day of 

, 1953, by and between the United 

States of America (herein called the "Govern- 
ment") acting by and through the Housing and 
Home Finance Administrator, and the City of 
Chicago, Illinois (herein called the "City"), 

Witnesseth : 

Whereas, pursuant to the provisions of Title V 
of the War Mobilization and Reconversion Act of 
1944, an Agreement was entered into between the 
Government, represented by the Federal Works 
Agency, Bureau of Community Facilities, and 
the City (identified as Application No. 111. 
ll-P-541) under the terms of which the Govern- 
ment agreed to make an advance of $100,000 
to the City for the complete plan preparation of 
a public work described therein as "Bridges, Via- 
ducts and Grade Separations — New Grade Sep- 
aration Structures, Bridge and Additional 
Thoroughfares for the elimination of existing 
railroad grade crossings. ( Elston Avenue to City 
Limits over CMSTP&P RR)"; and 

Whereas, the Government made an initial ad- 
vance payment of $50,000 to the City on May 15, 
1946; and 

Whereas, as of the date of this Supplemental

plans covering the public work described above; 
and 

Whereas, the detailed plans and specifications 
covering such public work cannot be completed 
until the City and the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. 
Paul and Pacific Railroad reach an agreement 
concerning the type of grade separation facilities 
to be provided; and 

Whereas, it is uncertain when such an agree- 
ment will be reached ; and 

Whereas, in the circumstances, it is deemed to 
be in the interest of the Government and the City 
to modify the terms of the Agreement described 
above so as to provide for the preparation of pre- 
liminary plans, instead of complete plan prepara- 
tion, covering the public work described therein ; 
and 

Whereas, the City has incurred plan prepara-

tions of the Municipal Court of Chicago, criminal 
and quasi-criminal branches, show that the Court 
processed 1,225,408 criminal and quasi-criminal 
cases during 1952 of which' 1,090,751 were traffic 
cases. The total cash income of the Court from all 
sources was $5,282,855.29 and all cash expenditures 
totaled $4,175,551.38, giving to the City of Chicago 
a net cash surplus of $1,107,303.91 on our 1952

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES

On motion of Alderman Bohling the committee's 
report was concurred in, by yeas and nays as follows : 

Yeas— Aldermen D'Arco, Harvey, Carey, Merriam, 
Muir, Bohling, Olin, DuBois, Pacini, Nowakowski, 
Wagner, Micek, Sheridan, Murphy, Corcoran,

Nays — None. 

The communication from the Corporation Counsel 
referred to in the foregoing committee report (ad- 
dressed to the Chairman and members of the com- 
mittee under date of April 21, 1953) reads as follows: 

"Dear Sir — In accordance with the suggestion of 
your committee at the meeting of April 16, 1953, 
we are submitting herewith a draft of a proposed 
amendment to Section 1-15 of the Revised Cities 
and Villages Act covering municipal liability for 
the acts of policemen. 

"We beUeve that if this amendment were passed 
by the legislature, it would eliminate many of the 
difficult problems which have confronted the city 
as a result of the present statute. We propose to 
limit the recovery against the city to $20,000. We 
believe that this is a fair and reasonable provision 
when you consider that prior to the passage of 
the present statute in 1945 there was no liability 
on the city. We are, therefore, granting to those 
persons injured through the negligent acts of 
policemen a new cause of action not provided for 
by the common law. Furthermore, prior to the 
passage of the act in 1945 it was necessary for 
the injured party bringing a suit against the 
policeman for his negligent act, to allege and 
prove malice. Under the present law he still brings 
his action against the policeman and the city is 
required to indemnify the policeman for any judg- 
ment rendered against him. Plaintiffs no longer 
allege malice in their complaints as a finding of 
malice would relieve the city of the duty of indem- 
nification. The city not being a party to the action 
is in no position to prove that malice is the gist 
of the action. Prior to the present act, the judg- 
ments against policemen for their negligent acts 
rarely exceeded the sum of $5,000. Under the 
present act two judgments in excess of $100,000 
recently have been rendered against policemen 
which under the law the city may be required 
to pay. 

"The proposed amendment makes the city direct- 
ly liable to the extent of $20,000., but specifically 
excludes the city from liability where the injury 
results from the wilful and wanton misconduct of 
policemen. 

"By making the city directly liable as so limited, 
we will eliminate the difficult questions arising as 
a result of the present statutory reference to in- 
demnity and will also eliminate the problem of the 
ethics involved in our representing policemen, be- 
cause under the proposed statute the city would be 
directly liable for negligence and would defend 
such cases, while we would not be liable in cases 
of wilful and wanton misconduct, and the provi- 
sion added for a specific finding as to whether the 
policeman is guilty of wilful and wanton miscon- 
duct will enable us to defend all such cases." 



General Assembly of Illinois Memorialized to Amend 
Workmen's Compensation Act to Exempt Mem- 
bers of Police Department from Operation 
of Act. 

The Committee on Judiciary and State Legislation 
submitted the following report: 

Chicago, April 10, 1953. 
To the President and Members of the City Council: 
Your Committee on Judiciary and State Legisla- 
tion, having had under consideration the draft of 
a bill, submitted by the Corporation Counsel's Office, 
to amend the Workmen's Compensation Act to 
exempt members of the police department in any 
city whose population exceeds 200,000 from the 
operation of said Workmen's Compensation Act, 
begs leave to report and recommend that Your 
Honorable Body do approve said bill, that the Cor- 
poration Counsel be instructed to arrange for its 
introduction in the General Assembly, and that the 
General Assembly be memorialized to enact same 
into law.

Governor and General Assembly of Illinois Memorial- 
ized to Take Necessary Action to Provide 
Constitutional "Home Rule" for Chicago 
and Other Illinois Cities. 

The Committee on Judiciary and State Legislation 
submitted a report recommending that the City Coun- 
cil adopt a proposed resolution transmitted therewith 
(presented by Alderman Cilella and referred March 
30, 1953) reading as follows: 

Whereas, The nearly 4,000,000 residents of the 
City of Chicago have little authority to determine 
for themselves the organization, powers or pro- 
cedures of their own government, and; 

Whereas, The real power of government of the 
City of Chicago remains vested in the Illinois Gen- 
eral Assembly, so that solution of Chicago prob- 
lems often depends upon the understanding of rep- 
resentatives who have been elected by citizens of 
rural areas or other cities and who are primarily 
concerned with matters affecting their own consti- 
tuents, and; 

Whereas, The results are that Chicago problems 
often fail to receive due and worthy consideration 
and the City Government lacks full responsibility 
as well as power for meeting local needs, and; 

Whereas, The General Assembly itself is hin- 
dered in its consideration of State problems by the

time-consuming task of legislating for Chicago, 
and. 

Whereas, The people of Chicago are capable and 
desirous of solving their own problems well and to 
a greater degree; now therefore 
Be It Resolved by the City Council of the City of 

Chicago, 

That the Governor and General Assembly of the 
•State of Illinois be and hereby are urged to take 
all necessary steps toward achieving constitutional 
home rule for the City of Chicago and other Illi- 
nois cities desiring to exercise the right of self- 
government. 

On motion of Alderman Bohling the committee's 
recommendation was concurred in and said proposed 
resolution was adopted, by yeas and nays as follows:

Chicago, April 6, 1953. 
To the President and Members of the City Council:

Proposal for Recommendation for Extension of 

Hours of Voting to 9:00 P.M. 

— Placed on File. 

The Committee on Judiciary and. State Legislation 
submitted the following report: 

Chicago, April 6. 1953. 
To the President and Members of the City Council: 
Your Committee on Judiciary and State Legis- 
lation having had under consideration a proposed 
order (referred April 20, 1951, page 19— previous- 
ly referred to a former committee on August 4, 
1950) for amendment of Chapter 46 of the Illinois 
Revised Statutes to nermit voting during the hours 
from 6-00 A. M. to 9:00 P.M., begs leave to report 
and recommend that said proposed order be Plnced 
on File, for the reasons set forth in the attached 
communication from Mr. Sidney T. Holzman, 
Chairman of the Board of Election Commissioners. 
This recommendation vi^as concurred in by 7 
members of the committee, with 2 dissenting votes. 
Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) N. J. Bohling, 

Chairman. 

On motion of Alderman Bohling the committee's 
recommendation was concurred in. 

The communication attached to the committee's 
report (addressed to the Chairman of the committee 
under date of April 2, 1953, and signed by Sidney T. 
Holzman, Chairman of the Board of Election Commis- 
sioners) reads as follows: 

"My dear Alderman— Pursuant to your request, 
we are submitting herewith information on the 
proposed amendment to the present law which 
establishes the hours of voting from 6 A.M. to 
5 P.M. at all elections. 

"In the first instance, it is well to consider the 
fact that at the present time and possibly for the 
next two years Chicago, of necessity, may have a 
combination of voting machine precincts and 
paper ballot precincts. It is the intention of the 
Board to establish a complete voting machine in- 
stallation at the earliest date possible. 

"The present schedule calls for the delivery of 
5200 voting machines by January 1, 1954. This 
constitutes all of the machines authorized by the 
City Council for use in Chicago. Because of the 
inability to secure adequate polling places to 
accommodate voting machines in certain precincts 
in the City of Chicago the Board has sponsored 
legislation which would enable a consolidation of 
certain precincts, or portions thereof, so that an 
adequate polling place would be available. The 
Board also has sponsored legislation to make it 
possible to establish a polling place outside of a 
given precinct, but on the street immediately 
contiguous to said precinct. The purpose of this 
legislation would also be to have available an 
adequate polling place to accommodate a voting 
machine. It is our opinion that until this program 



of complete installation has been accomplished that 
it would be legally impossible to designate different 
hours for voting machine precincts and for paper 
ballot precincts. On the other hand, if the voting 
hours were changed so that the period of voting 
would be extended until 7 P.M. or 8 P.M. on the 
day of election the obvious difficulty of completing 
the count in paper ballot precincts is apparent. 
The Board is aware of the desirability of memori- 
alizing the present General Assembly with refer- 
ence to changing the hours of voting, but it feels 
that it would serve a better purpose to defer this 
type of legislation until the next session of the 
legislature, because of the practical problems and 
prior legislation essential to an orderly and intel- 
ligent installation of voting machines in the City 
of Chicago. 

"It is interesting to note that under the present 
law, which provides for voting from 6 A.M. to 5 
P.M., in the last election of November, 1952, 87% 
of the registered voters under the jurisdiction of 
this Board cast a ballot. It is obvious from this 
fact that voters because of their intense interest 
in that election were able to arrange their affairs 
in a manner which made it possible for them to 
exercise the right of franchise. It is a question 
whether an extension of voting hours would accom- 
plish any substantial increase in the number of 
registered voters who would vote, but who, be- 
cause of the time limitation under the present 
law, are unable to vote. 

"It appears from our experience in past elec- 
tions that the percentage of voters who cast ballots 
is determined by the nature of the election in 
question and the individual interest that each 
voter has in said election. 

"In many jurisdictions of comparable size to 
Chicago, where the hours of voting range from 
7 A.M. to 7 P.M., and from 8 A.M. to 8 P.M., the 
percentage of votes cast in the last election of 
November, 1952 did not differ materially from the 
87% of registered votes cast in Chicago. 

"The Board wishes to advise your committee 
that it is not opposed to the principle of changing 
the voting hours to accommodate the individual 
voter, but rather submits the within information 
to assist your committee in its deliberation on this 
question." 



Proposal for Study of Effect of Crime Exposition 
BY Television — Placed on File.

Whereas, The Rev. Eugene F. O'Malley this 
month completes his twenty-fifth year as conductor 
of the famous Paulist Choir of Chicago ; and 

Whereas, For 49 years the Paulist Choir has been 
a credit and an inspiration to the cultural and 
musical life of our City, and has spread the fame 
of Chicago throughout North America and Europe 
by its appearances on both continents. In 1912 it 
was adjudged the finest choir in the world at a 
competition in Paris; and 

Whereas, The Paulist Choir is the school in 
-which thousands of Chicago boys have learned to 
sing with what competent critics have described 
as the purest and most ethereal tone known to mu- 
sic; and 

Whereas, Under Father O'Malley's leadership, 
the Paulist Choir, which has never failed to re- 
spond to requests to sing at City-sponsored bene- 
fits, sang gratis for 13 years at the annual Night 
of Stars shows sponsored by the late Mayor of 
Chicago for the City's underprivileged ; and Father 
O'Malley has been cited personally by the Federal 
Government, as has the choir, for the performances 
at which ten million dollars worth of war bonds 
were sold; and 

Whereas, For two generations the Paulist Choir 
has sent boys from its rehearsal stalls to two world 
wars and to the current Korean conflict; and 

Whereas, The pre-eminence of this outstanding 
choral organization is due in great measure to the 
musical brilliance, skillful administration and moral 
guidance of Father O'Malley; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That this City Council, for and on be- 
half of the people of the City of Chicago, hereby 
congratulates the Rev. Eugene F. O'Malley on his 
silver jubilee as conductor of the Paulist Choir, and 
wishes him many more happy and successful years

stantially in the following form: 
Consent 
We, the undersigned, being the owners or les- 
sees of the land described opposite our signa- 
tures, in consideration of the execution of this 
and similar Consents by a major portion (of the 
frontage) of other owners or lessees of land 
fronting on N. and S. Michigan Avenue between 
the south line of E. Randolph Street and the 
north line of E. 11th Place, do hereby, for our- 
selves, our heirs, administrators, executors, suc- 
cessors and assigns, consent to the construction,

roe Drive, east of the east line of S. Columbus 
Drive, north of the north line of E. Jackson 
Boulevard, and west of the west line of S. Lake 
Shore Drive, consisting of an area approximately 
eight hundred feet square. 

The amphitheater in general will be formed by 
an earth mound with gentle side slopes covered 
with a lawn and with a landscape treatment of 
trees and shrubs. At the east end and facing 
west there will be a stage and to the west there- 
of a banked seating area facing east. The seat- 
ing area is dished and slopes upward from a 
level approximately four feet below the stage 
to a level about fifty-four feet above the stage. 
The highest portion of the mound will be ap- 
proximately forty feet above adjacent street 
grades. It will contain a movable roof consisting 
of two fan shaped segments rotating from a 
pivot at the roof of the stage and supported ap- 
proximately eighty feet from its circumference

lead through tunnels to the underground con- 
course for distribution of patrons to the seating 
area. Service entrances to the stage will be at 
E. Jackson Boulevard and E. Monroe Drive. 

The stage will be ornamental in character with 
a series of pylons on either side of the stage 
opening, serving also as roof supports, the stage 
roof being thirty-five feet above the floor. Com- 
plete sound broadcasting facilities will be pro- 
vided in rooms in the roof of the stage. Beneath 
the stage there will be rooms such as dressing 
rooms, shower and toilet rooms, rehearsal, assem- 
bly, transformer and store rooms. Adjacent to

and it is hereby memorialized to enact into law 
appropriate legislation to enable the City of Chi- 
cago to regulate and effectually control rents on 
residential property with the same effect as pres- 
ently prevails under the Federal controls, such 
legislation to be in a form as will meet the constitu- 
tional or other legal objections raised in the case 
of Ambassador East Hotel v. City of Chicago, de- 
cided by the Illinois Supreme Court". 

The motion to amend was lost, by yeas and nays as 
follows :

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, The Federal Rent Control Law expires 
on April 30, 1953, and unless such law be renewed 
and rent control continued under Federal regula- 
tion a serious public emergency in housing may 
exist in Chicago ; and 

Whereas, In order to alleviate such emergency it 
. is necessary and desirable that the City of Chicago 
shall have appropriate legal power to control rents ; 
now, therefore be it 

Resolved, That the United States Congress be 
memorialized to continue Federal rent controls un- 
til at least December 1, 1953; and be it further 

Resolved, That the Illinois General Assembly be 
and it is hereby memorialized to enact into law

cago to regulate and effectually control rents on

ently prevails under the Federal controls, such

tional or other legal objections raised in the case 
of Ambassador East Hotel v. City of Chicago, de- 
cided by the Illinois Supreme Court; and be it

Recommendation Made to General Assembly of Illinois

On motion of Alderman Merriam the City Council 
took up for consideration the report of the Committee 
on Housing deferred and published March 30, 1953, 
page 4507, recommending that the City Council adopt 
a proposed resolution transmitted with the commit- 
tee's report to memorialize the General Assembly of 
Illinois not to pass the so-called "Larson Bills". 

Alderman Merriam moved to concur in the com- 
mittee's recommendation and adopt said proposed 
resolution. 

Alderman Bohling (seconded by Alderman DuBois)

guage:

tion, which is a cardinal principle in the Ameri- 
can system of government, and substitute therefor 
the specious and dangerous principle of requiring 
frequent referenda on detailed questions; and". 
The motion to amend prevailed. 
Alderman Wagner (seconded by Alderman Biesz- 

czat) moved to amend by striking out the following 

language : 

"Further Resolved, That the Governor of Illinois 
is hereby requested to use his. influence to prevent 
these bills from being enacted and if they are en- 
acted, to veto them; and be it". 
The motion to amend prevailed. 
The question thereupon being put on the adoption 

of the proposed resolution as amended, the motion 

prevailed, by yeas and nays as follows: 

Yeas — Aldermen D'Arco, Harvey, Carey, Merriam, 
Muir, Bohling, Wagner, Campbell, Bowler, Sain, 
Petrone, Gillespie, Ronan, Keane, Geisler, Cilella, 
Lancaster, Cullerton, Becker, Burmeister, Young, 
Freeman, Ducey, Bremer — 24. 

Nays — Aldermen DuBois, Pacini, Micek, Sheridan, 
Murphy, Corcoran, McKiernan, Janousek, Tourek, 
Bieszczat, Peska, Jacobs, Bauler — 13. 

Alderman Bowler moved to reconsider the fore- 
going vote. The motion was lost. 

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, Bills have been introduced in the cur- 
rent session of the General Assembly by Senator 
Larson to amend the Housing" Authorities Act of 
1934, as amended ; and 

Whereas, These bills provide in part that no 
Federally-aided, low-income housing project may 
be commenced or enlarged in Chicago until a 
majority of the voters of a ward, any part of which 
is within two miles of such project or enlargement, 
have approved such action at a special election; 
and further provide that a referendum shall also 
be held for any such projects included in annual 
reports of housing authorities; and further pro- 
vide for approval by referendum on the question of 
whether a housing authority is needed ; and 

Whereas, A bill with a similar purpose passed by 
the 67th General Assembly was vetoed by the Gov- 
ernor because it was incompatible with our repre- 
sentative system of government, because it would 
have reversed the public policy on housing in effect 
since 1934, and because it would have impaired the 
social and economic welfare of Illinois commu- 
nities and people by depriving them not only of 
decent low-cost housing, for those of low income, 
but also of slum clearance, since Federal law au- 
thorizing the indispensible financial assistance for 
slum-clearance projects is contingent upon the 
ability of Chicago to produce a plan for the reloca- 
tion of families living in slum-clearance areas in 
decent, safe and sanitary housing within their abil- 
ity to pay ; and 

Whereas, The Attorney General of Illinois ex- 
pressed grave doubt as to the validity of the pre- 
vious bill in view of the decisions of the Supreme 
Court that a class cannot be created by arbitrary 
legislative declaration so that it can receive special 
and exclusive favors ; and 

Whereas^ The voters of the City of Chicago, at 
an election in November, 1947, overwhelmingly ap- 
proved by referendum slum clearance and rehous- 
ing bond issues in the amount of thirty million 
dollars, to carry out the recommendations of the 



Mayor's Housing Action Program, which were ap- 
proved by the City Council, clearly indicating the 
public support of the bond issues and their pur- 
pose ; now, therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of 
Chicago hereby memorializes the General Assembly 
not to approve these bills; and be it 

Further Resolved, That the Chairmen of the 
Committee on Housing and the Committee on Judi- 
ciary and State Legislation be and they are hereby 
appointed to represent the City Council before 
the General Assembly to urge the defeat of these 
bills. 



Authorization, Consent and Approval Granted for 
Acquisition by Chicago Housing Authority 
of Three Sites and for Develop- 
ment Thereon of Public

Nays — Aldermen DuBois, Micek, Sheridan, Murphy, 
Corcoran, Bieszczat, Jacobs — 7. 

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

Whereas, the Mayor and the City Council of the 
City of Chicago, recognizing the dire need of hous- 
ing in Chicago for families of low income, desire 
the Chicago Housing Authority to proceed promptly 
with the acquisition of land on which will be con- 
structed public low-rent housing developments in 
accordance with the Illinois Housing Authorities 
Act of 1934, as amended, and the United States 
Housing Act of 1937, as amended, and as further 
amended by the Housing Act of 1949; and 

Whereas, the Illinois Housing Authorities Act 
of 1934, as amended, requires the Chicago Housing 
Authority, before acquiring real property, to advise 
the City Council of the City of Chicago of the 
description of the property proposed to be acquired 
and to obtain the approval of the City Council to
